The unofficial final count of delegates at Ingraham High School in North Seattle? 70 for Bernie, 20 for Hillary. An overflow crowd packed into the assembly hall, where we were talked for an extended period of time by a lady who just could not clearly and concisely explain the caucus process, try as she might. The people around me, sitting on the ground because all the seats in the hall were taken, periodically hung their heads, eagerly waiting for her to shut up.
She stopped speaking, finally! We broke into precincts. Some had to stand in the hallways. Others apparently got seats. The crowd was overwhelmingly white. In my precinct, one guy who identified himself as Hispanic urged a vote for Hillary because she would work with Republicans to pass immigration reform. Another man, who identified himself as Latino, saw things differently: Republicans will never pass immigration reform and Hillary as the nominee won’t get out the Democratic base to take control of Congress, so vote Bernie. Other than that, the arguments on both sides were fairly predictable: Bernie is unelectable, I want to see a female prez in my lifetime, Clinton is really experienced, Bernie will lead a progressive movement, Bernie will end the control of politics by big money, etc etc.
My particular precinct, in the end, allocated four delegates to Bernie, one to Hillary. My partner urged the Bernie supporters to select non-white-non-male Bernie delegates who would cut against stereotypes of Bernie fans, to limited avail: They ended up being two young white men and two young white women.
Two hours after we’d started, I asked people leaving the site how the felt about the process. They said it felt democratic, but also "tedious," "chaotic,” and "horribly inefficient." They were right. The latest caucus results are right here. Bernie's in the lead at the moment.
